Anxiety: Things to help turn off your brain at night

Good evening everyone! I should be asleep right now, it’s 1:30 in the morning, however I can’t because good ol’ anxiety. Today has definitely been rough and I can’t wait to get my 3 day weekend started! Don’t you just love it when you’re trying to get a good nights rest, however you can’t because your brain won’t shut up? Yeah I hate it too. In order to get that good nights sleep that I deserve after a long day at work, here’s what I do to ease my mind.

  • Listen to music– When I can’t sleep, sometimes it helps to put on some relaxing music such as jazz, r&b or lo-fi. As soon as I hear that piano playing I can feel myself drifting off to Snoozeville.
  • Have a nice glass of wine– A nice glass of wine can help put your mind at ease and drown out some of those negative thoughts.
  • Write out your thoughts– Don’t just let them linger in your mind. Utilize your blog or journal as a place to vent instead of just dwelling on any negative thoughts you might have.
  • Read a good book: Who doesn’t love a good adventure?! Unwind with that glass of wine in one hand and your favorite book in the other and I bet you’ll forget about all of your problems.

So these are some of the things that I like to do in order to help me sleep at night. What helps you sleep at nighy when anxiety gets the best of you at night? Let me know in the comments!! 😁
